To avoid this problem or minimize it, when you put the bike on the side stand, put a small piece if 2x6 lumber under the side stand. This will help. They all have this problem.

How to replace valve seals. when cycle is on side stand for a day or two and you start engine it smokes for a few seconds


This has been an issue for ALL Goldwing's (1000, 1100, 1200, 1500, and probably 1800's). It does not hurt anything. If you center stand you cycle it will never happen. but all Goldwing's are known to let out a puff of smoke if left on the side stand. The oil may be leaking past your piston rings and not your stem seals. If you want to change your stem seals you need to put the cylinder on top dead center compression stroke, remove the spark plug, screw in an air hose from your air compressor to pressurize your cylinder, with air pressure hold the valves in place compress the valve springs with a valve spring compressor, remove the parts (washer, cotter keys,and springs), pry off the seal, pop on the new one and reassemble. It is a lot easier living with the puff of smoke, Happy Trails.

I have a 1986 Aspencade Goldwing GL1200A, The bike got blown over do to strong winds. I can get the engine started but it will shut down a few minutes later or driving it about 2 to 3 block.


The fuel doesn't reaches the carburetors fast enough and they run dry - there's something wrong with the fuel line, it's choked somehow. Or the fuel pump was damaged by the fall. You should also check the tank and its tap.

I have an 84 honda goldwing aspencade and when it sits for a day or two it smokes when i start it but quits smoking after it warms up. ANY IDEAS ?


Yes, the piston rings are starting to wear allowing some oil into the cylinder when it sits idle .There are some things you could do such as switching to a high mileage oil that is specially formulated to help or maybe an oil additive. The bike still runs great i'm sure and will probably run for years before any major work needs done. hope this helps

Engine miss at 45-55mph, no accleration with throttle response,


Anytime a bike sits for that long you stand a chance of fuel system problems. It sounds like you may need to "boil out" the carburetors and of course resynchronize them with vacuum gauges when you put it back together. You can also use a mercury manometer for synching the carbs. My guess is you have varnish still in the float bowls that is causing erratic running and perhaps the vacuum operated slides are not working correctly.
